|Abstract:||Objective: This study described the prevalence of periodontal conditions and assessed its association with social, economical and behavioral variables in adults aged 35 to 44 years old, residents in the city of Guarulhos, State of Sao Paulo, 2006. Methods: This study was a population based survey with cluster sampling. Data collecting and exams were done at houses drew at random. The Community Periodontal Index was used to assess the periodontal condition. Data analysis used EPIINFO 6 and STATA 10 softwares. The assessment of association used the prevalence ratio (PR), as calculated by Poisson regression models with complex sampling and weighted sample adjustments. Results: The total number of people was 263 in 237 domiciles. In the multivariate model, the prevalence of gingival bleeding and dental calculus was significantly associated to being male (PR=1.12, p=0.04), smoking (PR=1.11, p=0.01), school level of less than eight years of study (PR=1.14, p=0.01), and who have not received dental care for more than two years (PR=1.19, p<0.01). As for the presence of periodontal pocket, associated factors were smoking (PR=1.71, p=0.02) and who have not received dental care for more than 2 years (PR=1.97, p=0.03). Conclusion: We observed a higher prevalence (62.7%) of individuals with gingival bleeding and dental calculus in relation to the presence of shallow or deep periodontal pockets (26,6%). As shallow pockets are reversible, their treatment may be resolute in programs of primary dental care.|
